April Favourites

So we're officially in the final month of Autumn which I'm a tad sad about because I'm still yet to wear my scarves, chunky knits and knee high boots with these strange Spring-like temperatures. Anyway, enough about the weather and let's get on with the reason why you're here and that's my April favourites!


I've had this palette hiding in my drawers since Christmas, but I only just recently discovered it so I spent the month having a little play. I was quite concerned that the shade 'Medium to Tan' would be utterly disastrous for my skin tone, however it's surprisingly very workable! The bronzing 'Sculpt' shade has a nice undertone to it so it's not overly warm or cool and it blends seamlessly over the skin. 'Light Up' is a stunning shimmery warm champagne highlight that really delivers that glow factor and just intensifies that summery golden look. Sometimes I like to add a bit of it to the cheeks along with 'After Glow' which is VERY comparable to NARS 'Orgasm', so you know it's going to leave you with the most beautiful coral-pink flush. This palette is absolutely fabulous and would come super handy when I travel next!


My toe nails have seen better days so I bought this on a whim and boy am I glad that I did! It helps to fill in ridges, strengthen, re-hydrate the nail and cover discolouration with its natural peachy tone. Now it's not an instant miracle worker as you'd have to apply it for a few months to see the best results, but after the first application I already noticed an improvement - my nails looked healthier, nourished and less damaged so that is good enough for me! The jasmine, rose and vitamin e in the formula have definitely rescued my nails and I cannot recommend it enough, especially if you struggle with brittle nails.


This face oil smells heavenly but what I really love about it is the non-greasy texture and how lightweight it feels on the skin. 3-4 drops is all I need for my face and neck and it works to brighten, hydrate and also reveal a healthier, more youthful complexion. Model Co's skincare range are pretty new to me but if they are anything like this face oil, then you'll most certainly be seeing them around on the blog. 

How was your April?
